How to Choose a Cosmetic Dentist

General & Cosmetic Dentist serving Hoboken, Jersey City & Hudson County areas of New Jersey


With so many cosmetic dentists in the Hoboken, New Jersey area competing for your business, choosing the right cosmetic dentist can be an overwhelming task. It is important to evaluate your options carefully to ensure you choose a cosmetic dentist who understands your goals and has the extensive experience necessary to deliver the beautiful results you deserve.

Pay attention to the following factors when evaluating a potential cosmetic dentist to ensure you find the right person to address your unique needs.

Education, Training, and Experience

It is important to evaluate your cosmetic dentist’s education, training, and experience. Cosmetic dentistry is both a science and an art. As a result, a good cosmetic dentist must have the skills and background necessary to blend the technical and aesthetic aspects of these procedures to deliver results that are both beautiful and functional.

You should look for a cosmetic dentist who has demonstrated a commitment to continuing education, particularly in the field of cosmetic dentistry. Completing course work at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI), the premier cosmetic dentistry training institution in the country, is a good indication that your cosmetic dentist has the proper background to deliver the results you deserve.


Recent advances in cosmetic dental technology have dramatically improved the aesthetic results which can be achieved from cosmetic dentistry. Make sure your cosmetic dentist uses the latest and most advanced technology, including:

  • Computer-generated imaging with your smile design and a wax-up of your new smile to provide you with a better idea of what your results will look like
  • Clinical and computerized smile analysis that is tailored to your unique oral health needs and aesthetic goals
  • Partnerships with high quality dental labs to ensure your restorations are durable, functional, and beautiful
  • Soft tissue lasers that provide for greater precision and improve your comfort

Relationship Building

Ultimately, you will want to work with a cosmetic dentist who truly cares about helping you achieve the smile of your dreams. You can get a feel for the level of personalized care you can expect to receive from your initial consultation. Does the team make an effort to make sure you are comfortable from the moment you walk into the office? Does the cosmetic dentist spend as much time as needed to listen to your concerns, answer all your questions, and explain all your options?
